    Whatever hits the fan will not be distributed evenly.

    Works for me, Zardoz works too. I haven't used it in a couple years, but the first time I did I was hitting wet spots and nearly face planting. I went into the shop and tried the towelettes, it worked. I had been buying the puck, and using it prior to hot waxing. Like 2knees said, stick to the bumps, it's the place to be in the Spring. Even I can ski Spring bumps, good for the ego.

    ^ Thank you, sir. May I have another?

    Break out the fat skis and slap on some yellow wax. Apply sunscreen. Stay away from short sleeved shirts or shorts because, if you take a digger, the raspberries you get on snow are worse than on astroturf. Trust me on this.

    Yeah, I fell last year at Wachusett, I was gloveless, and I scraped up my hands pretty damn good.

    Fat skis and soft wax. This time of year I just was with a straight household candle (unscented), It has similar qualities to the yellow. Steeper shady terrain is where its at

    Fat is where it is at. Fat skis are fun in the slush and mashed potatoes. Almost as fun as powder.
    skiing is not just an activity, it is a lifestyle!
